In or about September 2016, reports began to surface indicating that Samsung/Kenmore’s top load washing machines were breaking apart and/or exploding while in use.  Specifically, the reports indicated that the drums inside the top load washing machines were losing balance and excessively and violently vibrating.  Once the top load washing machines were off balance, many burst apart, separating the inside drum and/or the top from the machine and blowing the machine apart.

On September 28, 2016, Samsung posted a press release on its website recognizing the potential safety issues related to the top load washing machines which were manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016.  On October 4, 2016, Health Canada issued a recall specifically identifying the affected machines noting that they posed a risk of personal injury and damage to property and on November 4, 2016, Health Canada updated and expanded the recall to cover 256,000 affected machines in Canada.
